Small problems with your dental health today can become big problems tomorrow.
No matter how often you brush and floss, you cannot remove the hardened plaque or calculus that build up along the gum line and can lead to Gingivitis (swollen gums), and Periodontitis (gum disease) that causes tooth loss.
For a self-dental evaluation ask yourself these questions:
- Do you experience any pain before chewing?
- Is there pain with hot and cold food or drink?
- Do you chew only on one side?
- Do you catch food in-between your teeth?
- Are you happy with your smile?
- Is there discoloration or spots on your teeth?
- Do you have bad breath?
- Are you self-conscious about your smile?
- Are your teeth chipped or crooked?
- Are you aware of the latest technology and dental skills that have greatly
reduced discomfort in dental care?
- Do you have information on the new materials and methods that have
revolutionized cosmetic dentistry?
If you answered YES to any but the last two questions, you may want to make an appointment with us for a dental evaluation. A good relationship with your dentist is one of the very best investments you can make for your future oral health–one that can save you a lot of money in the long run. Remember, dentistry is not expensive, neglect is.
